FOGHAT one of classic rock’s most enduring bands, scored big on the Billboard charts with their latest album, Under the Influence, debuting at #17 on “Hard Rock Albums,” and #40 on “Independent Albums.” To celebrate this accomplishment, the band will be rocking BB King’s in NYC for a record release party, on September 21st. And after the show, the band will meet and greet their fans & friends at the bar which will be serving FOGHAT Cellars Wines!

Some very special guests who also performed on the record will be joining FOGHAT on stage! These include incredible blues guitarist Scott Holt (former Buddy Guy), and for the first time since 1970 (in a pre-announced show), Kim Simmonds of SAVOY BROWN will be joining his former band mate Roger Earl! Roger played with SAVOY BROWN from 1968 through 1970 and performed on five albums during that period. The audience is in for a real treat! Other surprise guests are also in the works.

According to Kim Simmonds in a recent interview, “I always had a great respect for Roger as a person and a drummer. He certainly helped make SAVOY BROWN the entity that it is…. It’s always nice to be around people that understand you and know you well. Like when you go home to your parents and the family you feel comfortable because you know that your parents really know everything about you. I think it’s the same with Roger and myself. We know a lot about each other and that’s the sort of a comfort that you get from still being in touch with people. I suppose it’s like old school mates or something. In this case we are old band mates.”

And the feeling is mutual from Roger’s end. “Kim gave me my shot when I was 20 years old and I joined his band. I have very fond memories playing with Kim, and also it’s a gas that we can still be friends and make music together. Kim Simmonds is just spectacular on this record. Kim and I remained friends over the years. In fact, we jammed together; when we did the Rock Legends cruise last year. Kim got up and played a couple of songs with us, and I played on another day that Kim and SAVOY BROWN was playing. I played three or four songs with him. As a guitar player, he was always a great! And he is even better now! He’s a brilliant blues guitarist.”

Formed in 1971 in London, FOGHAT remains one of rock's top "boogie" bands, having amassed eight gold records, one platinum, and one double platinum record in the U.S., along the way. Additionally, the group has scored hits with the songs "Slow Ride", "Fool For The City", a cover of "I Just Want To Make Love To You", “Stone Blue” and "Third Time Lucky (First Time I Was A Fool)", all of which are still in regular rotation on classic rock radio. And on September 21st, New York City-based FOGHAT fans will be in for a night they will never forget!
